Anybody who's been to the Mediterranean, how do you get stamps for postcards and where do you mail them from? I don't ususally send postcards while cruising - I've only sent them from Hawaii, but that's the US. But the Mediterranean is special and it might be my only time over there, so I want to share (ok, I want to brag). Do ships have postage stamps and will they mail them?
Yes the ships carry the postage of each port they visit and they will mail them for you. Check the deadline to put it in the box or you can buy the postage, buy postcards in port and mail them yourself. Enjoy!

I don't know your stops, but Vatican City has it's own post office. I was able to get a post card of the Vatican and mail it to myself. About 3 or four days after I got home I got the postcard. It was .85 Euros to mail.

We were just in the Med last fall and two of our tours gave us postcards with stamps and sent them out for us. I thought that was a very nice touch. You just do not have a whole lot of time to write them. Some people did not have addresses with them. However someone suggested to send them to themselves so they have a nice souvenir.
